The 3rd head is certainly better than all the AdMech knight heads released by FW so far.


That's not exactly a high bar though. The variants for the Cerastus frame do look good, especially alongside the cog patterned armour plates of the Atrapos. But the head variants for the Questoris frame, with the exception of the first two new ones are just awful. Maybe they would look a bit better with a more AdMech paint scheme, but as there shown on the FW site eww.
Still I hope this points towards FW doing more addons for the plastic kit. New weapons(ranged and close combat) and more cosmetic stuff like variant armour plates would be welcome.

Those heads are a definite improvement (apart from the last one). Not sure why Forgeworld keep making those gas mask/cylon style heads. Transfers are nice though.

Empty? No, I will be able to fill that space with my 8+ Knights for my Questoris Army. I keep holding off and doing other projects until I get my decals (now out of sheer stubbornness!).

I can't wait for the day they arrive, because I need a bunch of other crap too and won't order from FW until they get my gosh-darn decals!

Not that long ago and they didn't give anything concrete as per usual. In the interim since the preview though, they have released like... seven decal sheets. Two of them at least were wholly unseen before release (I believe). It is just so weird that Conquest came out so long ago and only Makabius has decals. What the eff, Forge World!

I really like the dwarfs. Imo the lotr dwarfs have always been the best on the market and that trend continues even with hobbit-designs. And though I dislike the concept, the miniatures of the goat riders look decent as well.

Something seems off about those dwarf sculpts.. the faces seem somewhat flat and featureless which isn't what I'd expect from Forgeworld resins. They look like mid-grade plastic sculpt quality ala mantic 2-3 years ago.

Flat featureless faces? They are mostly covered by beards and helmets.

They're beautiful sculpts imo, I second the earlier comment that LotR dwarves are the best there is.

Naw man, it is a FW House that they have painted their models already. The Cerastus Acheron is in those colors! Plus, it lets them sell those metallic paints too. And they did preview the stupid decals... there is just some holdup on them for some undisclosed reason. :(

I'm comparing them to previous LOTR offerings and I like the LOTR (and GW therefore) dwarven aesthetics overall. The details look shallow like someone took the 3d file for the face and flattened it 50% in the z-axis (towards the camera) giving the facial features less depth. Compare the guy in the front to Gimli for instance or the commander in another set..

Spoiler:






YMMV but the faces closer to 3d designed for mass produced plastic limitations dwarves like the pci below and not forgeworld resin sculpted ones. The rest of the model is fine but the facial sculpting is disappointing.

Spoiler:

Possibly but it feels more like them using a sculptor who primarily works with 3d designs for injection plastic models complete with all the inherent limitations of that process instead of one more familiar with resin/metal sculpting.

Magnus is the next Primarch. The next book is meant to be Dark and Blood Angels so Sanguinius and the Lion will probably be next. Dorn and Alpharius will be done when the story gets back round to them, I think I remember reading from someone's event report. It sucks, but I think they only have the one sculptor (Egan) on Primarchs atm.

Loving the second head of the 3.
Would be nice if they decided to release a standard cerastus knight body, then had heads and arms separate.

Would allow them to expand the range a lot more and gives tons more options.

Although, it would render current knights pointless I guess.
